It has been a couple of years since I started blogging but I still feel like a newbie in this Blog-O-World. In fact, I feel that I have been able to realise my potential as a blogger only this year. But, there was a time when I had almost given up on blogging. I got so lost and frustrated then that nothing made sense. Everything was a chaos; going out of control. Tired and depressed I had stepped out of this amazing world of Blogging. The realisation struck me when I looked back and found that there was no one but myself who was the source of that chaos. Only I was to blame for the faults committed.  Here’s how I went about to rectify ‘The Faults in my Blogging’

from a Blogger's Life

 

The List of Faults

To solve any problem first we need to assess the problem itself and that is what I did as the first step. I listed out all the wrong practices followed by me while blogging:-

Poor Interaction: My idea to start a blog was for doing Book Reviews. After the first few weeks of posting on my blog, I started receiving comments and followers. Out of curiosity, I visited those blogs but never commented on them. I was hesitant to write something lest I make a mistake. My fault was that my interaction in the blogosphere was next to nil. Eventually, I lost my views and followers.

Too Many Commitments: Since I love reading books and write reviews for them, I enrolled myself in many such websites which organised blog tours and provided books to review. The fault was I didn’t plan accordingly and accepted many ‘review copies’ at the same time. The after effect was that I couldn’t complete most of the commitments and ended up messing the reputation of my blog.

Imitating others: In the beginning, I used to visit several blogs to peep into their activities.  My fault was that for popularising my blog, I copied such similar acts in mine as well. Since they were not my ideas and I lacked the knack to carry them out properly, they looked forced and fake on my site. As a result, they never received the reaction I intended to have.

Fickling Theme: Furthermore, I used to experiment too much with the theme of my blog. I would change my theme and menu options very frequently. This fault created confusion among my readers as they had to navigate themselves in a new way every time they visited.

Impatience: Above all, I was an impatient blogger. I wanted all the positive aspects of blogging in no time. I wanted my blog to be the most talked about, most followed in a matter of a few months. This self-centred mentality and high expectations for my blog ultimately gave me frustration and nothing else. This was one of the biggest faults in my blogging. I was foolish not to realise that fulfilment of expectations can be achieved only by sheer hard work.

As expected with all these faults committed by me, I did not grow as a blogger and went on a hiatus for a year or so.

 

What happened thereafter?

A ping or a message about someone subscribing to my blog or liking my published post used to rattle me during my hiatus period. As time passed, I reflected upon the things I had done while blogging and honestly acknowledged my mistakes. I took a decision to come back as I had always loved reading and writing and blogging had given me a perfect avenue.

Hence, I took the following steps:

1) Straightening out my priorities was the first thing. I sat and wrote what I wanted most from blogging.

2) Secondly, I limited my commitments and accepted the requests only when I was sure to fulfil them.

3) I consciously started replying to my readers and leaving comments on the blogs I visited. Communicating and making friends in Blogosphere became one of my top priorities. Slowly and steadily, I succeeded in having regular conversations with my fellow bloggers. (It has become my habit now and I am very happy about it.)

4) Content and Consistency were the other two aspects which I sincerely paid attention to.

5) Lastly, I stopped imitating others and concentrated on what I was most capable of.

 

Where do I stand at present?

After months of following my revised agenda, I can confidently say that I am progressing forward. There are things which I still need to learn but I am not in a rush. I feel satisfied and comfortable in my virtual space. In the course of time, I have made some good friends here who advise me and support me whenever required. Talking to them is like talking to old friends. Also, I have got my groove back as my focus is on only writing what I love.

I am a Happy Blogger now

I am a Happy Blogger now 🙂

Until then,

    this is a very honest description and very introspective as well. I think we are all extremely impatient in the start, and only lose enthusiasm soon after.

      Preeti · September 23, 2018 at 9:08 pm

      So true. The key is to be patient and consistent in what we are doing. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

  • Keerthi Vydyula · September 15, 2018 at 5:17 pm

    I couldn’t agree more! Those are the mistakes many of us commit when we start out. It is indeed very important to discover our true passion for writing and set a style of our own instead of blindly following others.

      Preeti · September 16, 2018 at 3:38 am

      Yes, I completely agree with you. Though it took me some time to realise, I am glad that I did 🙂

  • Veena · September 13, 2018 at 11:19 pm

    I think I have done most of these mistakes myself but i am glad your plan is working and your blog looks good!!

      Preeti · September 16, 2018 at 3:44 am

      Aww. Thanks for your comment. It really made me happy

  • Preety tiwari · September 13, 2018 at 5:00 pm

    Glad to know that finally u analyzed what’s going wrong with your blog and corrected it… We all make mistakes but only few have courage to accept, lovely read. #MyFriendAlexa #DelhibloggerReads

      Preeti · September 16, 2018 at 3:51 am

      Even I am glad that I could correct them. Thanks for stopping by 🙂

    Interaction is the most important part of blogging that every blogger should do.

      Couldn’t agree with you more. thanks for stopping by 🙂

  • Sudip Saha · September 12, 2018 at 4:00 pm

    Trust, even I made similar mistakes while managing a tech blog. had to take it down after 4 years due to poor stats. Learned from those mistakes and launched a new blog. Receiving an overwhelming response since Day 1. Reached that position in the last 7 months which I couldn’t do in the 4 years of tech blogging.

  • शिप्रा त्रिवेदी · September 12, 2018 at 1:59 pm

    This is such an honest post. I too made many such mistakes. I even changed by blog’s name as well in order to give it a new identity. Believe me, these are not faults. these are the things that let us grow naturally, and by realizing our own mistakes, we can evolve as a better writer.

  • Ishita Hurkat · September 12, 2018 at 11:21 am

    Having just started blogging myself, I’m still exploring my writing style.
    I’m glad you found the right balance for your blog!

  • momtasticworld · September 12, 2018 at 1:09 am

    Felt as if I was reading my own story, Loved it 🙂 I am learning too, each day its a new lesson.

  • Shubhra Rastogi · September 11, 2018 at 11:40 pm

    One learns form their mistakes and emerges as a stronger and better person. One really needs courage to accept that they made a mistake. Lovely write up… All the best to you #MyFriendAlexa

  • writenlive · September 11, 2018 at 11:33 pm

    Content and Consistency is one of the first steps in blogging and I have slipped on this account most of all.

    You have written a Very good post on the pitfalls that befall a new blogger. Loved the content and the presentation, Preeti!

  • Neha Jain · September 11, 2018 at 11:32 pm

    That’s such an honest one from you..I know we all can match to some extent and learn more ..loved your post

  • Varsha Gode · September 11, 2018 at 11:11 pm

    Rectifying the mistakes and talking about them on SM takes utmost courage Preeti 🙂
    I had few ups and downs as well like how does the blog gets visibility, how and when to post and what to post. Don’t call yourself Impatient Blogger, according to me a person who can read a book and finish it can be the most patient person on this earth (p.s. I’m the impatient types and take ages to read a book :P)

  • stunningmoon · September 11, 2018 at 10:52 pm

    it’s good to sit and jot where we’re lacking and how we can get better. I feel I don’t give my blog the kind of focus it needs too.

  • crazygreenlady · September 11, 2018 at 10:47 pm

    Thank you for laying out your faults so that others can also learn from it. As you have rightly said, we must know what we want from blogging. Fame? Money? Visitors? to promote our books? Once we are sure of what we are after then the hard work begins. And connections are everything.

    Namratha from #firstgreenstep

  • blogitwithsurabhi · September 11, 2018 at 10:37 pm

    Great insights on learning from our own mistakes. Being a new blogger I make this as my bookmark to avoid similar mistakes. Keep writing!

  • Kadambari Singh · September 11, 2018 at 10:22 pm

    You know I have also neglected my blog for long and took up Alexa challenge to get back at it. Your faults are some faults that even I do…Thanks for a heads up.

  • ☆Novemberschild☆ (@romspeaks) · September 11, 2018 at 8:51 pm

    Possibly the most frustrating challenge for many bloggers including mine in the past was trying to attract more visitors. In fact, most bloggers don’t give very much thought and in turns into a mistake, as to how they will attract visitors until after the blog has been launched and they find that not many people are visiting. Regardless of how much traffic you have, you’ll always want more. But for many this can be a discouraging problem to face, and it’s one that leads many bloggers to give up and stop blogging.

  • Deepa · September 11, 2018 at 8:22 pm

    We all go through such phase as bloggers. As you said, its all about content and consistency. Good to know you were able to rectify all the points.

  • Leha · September 11, 2018 at 7:53 pm

    This was a very honest article. All of us bloggers must have gone through this in the beginning. It’s a process we grow and learn into..
    #MyFriendAlexa #literarylehareads

  • tinacharya · September 11, 2018 at 6:56 pm

    What an honest confession. It needs guts to confess and accept your own mistakes and then rectify them. We make mistakes because we are destined to grow better. You wrote it so beautifully. Loved It 🙂

  • jayanthi6 · September 11, 2018 at 6:31 pm

    So true,Preeti – I also committed the same mistake as you by not interacting with anybody – now I also comment and interact and it is a much more enjoyable journey… 🙂

  • Latha · September 11, 2018 at 6:18 pm

    You are not alone. I did all these and more 😥

    I am still trying to better this blogging ggame

    First of all, thank you for sharing this. Redeeming mistakes and confrontation need guts. I would remember your points.

    I guess every blogger goes through this phase at lease once in their blogging journey. It’s been a year since I started my blog and since then I have made many mistakes, I reflect upon them, learn from my faults and amend my practices. There had been many such phases where I just wanted to leave blogging but would soon come to terms with my feelings, dreams and goals. You are doing a great job, Preeti. Keep blogging, keep going!

  • purbajune · September 11, 2018 at 5:58 pm

    A wonderful, straight from the heart post. Loved your honesty.

  • Milan · September 11, 2018 at 5:57 pm

    Such an honest post!! I have learnt a thing or two from your post; seriously.

  • Sonam Jain · September 11, 2018 at 5:57 pm

    This is a very bold post. We all make mistakes and never talk about it. Accepting and talking about mistakes is a great positive step

  • arv! · September 11, 2018 at 5:54 pm

    Generally, when I have too many commitments, I go slow on writing a new post because t takes a lot of time for me to compose and edit. Replying on time shows that you value a visitor for his time. what do you think?

  • Paresh Godhwani · September 11, 2018 at 5:43 pm

    There are tonnes of bloggers out there and to survive you need to interact, post consistently and have patience. I have never ever thought of stop blogging.

  • vartikasdiary1 · September 11, 2018 at 5:22 pm

    I totally agree that it gets overwhelming at times when you have so much on your plate and no time to finish it. Planning, prioritizing and organizing helps. I started writing a year back, happy that I read this blog, will keep these in mind so that i dont make these mistakes. Good luck to you and congratulations for sailing through 🙂

  • Sonia Chatterjee · September 11, 2018 at 5:16 pm

    I will complete a year of blogging in two days. Of all the points that you have written, I relate most to the point of very little interaction. Initially, I expected people to discover me and I rarely read others. I have tried to change that for the past few months and the results have been amazing. You have written a post that will be most helpful for new bloggers.

  • Huma Masood · September 11, 2018 at 5:16 pm

    Hi Preeti, It was a pleasure browsing your well designed blog.

  • Maya Bhat · September 11, 2018 at 5:12 pm

    This sounds so much like me. I too was like this initially when I didn’t know how blogosphere worked. Then slowly I came across some awesome people from whom I learnt a lot about how a blog works.

    After I shifted to a self hosted blog, I didn’t do the same mistake ever. I became more responsible for what I do on my blog. I also used to commit for so many book reviews earlier. And seriously I never scheduled them.

    Everything is a part of growth right. Our blog is our solo venture. We learn when we do mistakes. 🙂

  • alpanadeo · September 11, 2018 at 5:09 pm

    That’s is an honest post of a blogger. It is always good to learn where we are lacking and accepting it. Blogging is not just we write and others read. It’s a connection that we create with our readers through writing. They start to relate to us through our writing. All the points are very true but to me not copying others is very important. What makes your blog special is the uniqueness and originality. I truly believe in this.

  • Ranjini · September 11, 2018 at 2:59 pm

    I feel you! I have been blogging for 8 years now, rather clumsily. I haven’t paid attention to anything .It was just a place to go when I felt like lightening my heart. But now, I’ve begun taking the right step. My Friend Alexa is a part of that. I began by investing in my blog.

  • Jheelam · September 11, 2018 at 2:42 pm

    I, too, came back to blogging after 2-3 years of hiatus. Poor communications with other bloggers and imitating the “it” gang- have been my follies as well. Thank you for listed down how you’ve mended your path. I can learn from it.

  • Priya · September 11, 2018 at 2:21 pm

    this post is quite beneficial for new bloggers like me. Not communicating enough is something that I am guilty of. I am not a social person, but if I want to grow it’s imperative that I read and comment. Besides, a good comment always makes the blogger smile. Cheers! Here is to many more years of writing and blogging 🙂

  • Kalpana Manivannan · September 11, 2018 at 2:15 pm

    All the things you have mentioned are genuine things any new blogger would have done, but its good you decided to get back to blogging. Its important that we learn from our mistakes and move on. Your post is surely helpful. Thanks for sharing your experiences.

  • Anshu Bhojnagarwala · September 11, 2018 at 1:56 pm

    A very honest post, Preeti! I agree with you on all those points – copying others blindly just because they are successful can backfire. I have too learnt this the hard way. This post of yours tempts me to share my blogging journey too – with some dos and don’ts. Thanks for this post.

  • JayanthyGovindarajan (@JayanthyG) · September 11, 2018 at 1:53 pm

    Hugs Preeti! I must say I enjoyed reading this post since I was able to relate with most of your thoughts. I have personally gone through these as well. I have personally made a few many mistakes with my blog. I finally found peace with my blog when I started tapping myself and sharing what I felt I need to change and opened up better on my blog. That’s all we need. In the end, We are all stories and those are the ones we need to share!

    I am so happy you found your muse and enjoy blogging now!

  • Nihar Pradhan · September 11, 2018 at 12:30 pm

    Preeti, it is such a honest confession and precisely what all of us a blogger go through, only the shades of experience may change. But that’s how the blogosphere operates and as an operator we have navigate that phase of challenge and frustration that creeps in. Then comes the need to galvanize ourselves and get the basics in place and you have done so meticulously and nothing then stops in speeding in the space of blogging. This is indeed an exciting space and there are rules and there are guidelines that govern our engagement. We all take our time to get align with this new way of operating and engaging in the virtual world.
    As rightly pointed out the real mantra remains on the art of managing content and being consistent, and for that we need to have our passion, the plan and programme in place.
    Thanks for sharing your journey and it will a good learning and inspiration for many aspiring to venture into this space…

  • Charu Gujjal · September 11, 2018 at 10:04 am

    Being a happy blogger is the first step to being a successful one. I too made a few mistakes when I started off with my blog, but gradually learnt from those mistakes. I think prioritizing helped me as well.

  • syncwithdeep · September 11, 2018 at 10:01 am

    I loved your honesty. Almost everyone of us would have gone through this when we started as a blogger. While we wait to receive comments we forget that we have to acknowledge them in return.. Yea.. Glad, you identified the faults and emerged successful. Wishing u all the best in your future projects.

  • sukrisblog · September 11, 2018 at 9:58 am

    The whole idea of blogging is to write impromptu. But we all like to have readers who should visit again. In this dilemma we end up doing wrong things to our blog. Actually I too had the fear of lack of visitors. Since i write more on nonfiction and self development it is rather a dull genre so it becomes quite stressful when you think of how your readers would see or think and whether they would even visit to read. Yet i think i have come a long way now and feel that all those posts that hit the right note were those straight from the heart.

  • Dipali Bhasin · September 11, 2018 at 9:54 am

    Dear Preeti,

    This is such an earnest post. Retrospection is so important to mull over what happened in the past and to analyse how one can better oneself for the future. You’ve covered some good points that most of us tend to falter or overlook. It’s a reminder to everyone in the blogosphere not to repeat them. Thank you for the share.

    Cheers!
    Dipali

    The first thing in success is to accept the fault or the problem. Unless you know what is the problem, you cannot find the solution. You have reviewed yourself very well.

    I loved this article for the honesty and selflessness you showed in sharing your learnings. As a newbie, I’m sure a lot of ppl will learn from you and check themselves from doing the mistakes. I sure can connect with you on overcommitment stuff.

    Such an honest, and insightful post, Preeti.
    Starting out, we are all guilty of making some of these mistakes, if not all of them.
    By sharing these you will make bloggers realise they are not alone.
    Glad you found your groove.
    You write beautifully, and I hope you will now write regularly too.

    Making mistakes is part of the learning process. Glad you were able to do a self-analysis and implement your findings. Wish you all the best.

    We all make mistakes . Learning is actually not possible without mistakes . I also want to analyze my blooging mistakes and write about .

      Preeti · September 10, 2018 at 4:48 pm

      So true Monika. Mistakes are an essential part of our growth. The only problem is many fail to realise and accept them. It took time for me as well, but when I did… there was no looking back. Would love to read that post of yours. Maybe I also learn something from there:)

  • Kurian · September 9, 2018 at 9:51 pm
